Triumeq

Triumeq

I've been on triumeq for at least 8 or so years. I take it every day. Before that since 2004 I took 3 other pills. Truvada and 2 others I forgot their names

Anyway I took a dr ordered blood test last week and I have a viral load of 50. It is no longer undetectable I'm wondering why. I've never missed a dose as far as I can think of

No I never got covid but I was under a lot of stress moving to a new home and my mom sick

That's what I was going to say. I became resistant to Symtuza and Biktarvy. Dr. put me on Triumeq almost 2 years ago and, combined with Trogarzo, it got me to undetectable. 50 is pretty borderline undetectable though; not a severe spike just yet. Maybe you wait a month and have bloodwork done again before doing a medicine switch? Could be just a random spike, or your body responding to something else happening.

If I'm not mistaken we become resistance to the meds i hope your Dr decided to change you to a new medicine Blessings..

Mine did the same. Wait a month and retest again. Probably stress, or the test itself. 50 is very low but worth checking out!

Stress can definitely cause a spike. Also, my ID told me that taking certain antacids at the same time (literally, same exact moment, or within a few mintues) of taking the ART meds can inhibit certain ARTs from being absorbed, lessening their effect. I had heartburn really bad...stopped taking omeprazole entirely, and resolved to only take Tums a few hours off from my Triumeq
